The results: High GMAT score and acceptance into his first-choice graduate school

Diagnosed with ADHD late in his life, Dave* missed out on the opportunities to master vital content in school. As an adult, he still struggled with basic math and writing concepts, which then impacted his confidence and drive. Dave made the decision to go back to school to obtain his Master’s Degree, but first he had to rectify all the academic skills he lacked and also pass the GMAT.

Dave’s tutor was creative in developing lessons that re-taught basic concepts in a scaffolded manner while also building skills for the GMAT. Not only did Dave finally begin to understand material that had evaded him his whole life, but he also started to enjoy learning. Dave passed the GMAT with a score that contributed to his acceptance to his first-choice graduate school in Chicago.

Here’s what he had to say about working with WorldWise Tutoring:

“Lindsey has a remarkable ability to quickly assess her students’ learning style and tailor her teaching methods accordingly. She’s very patient, reeling me in when I’m at my most distracted and working overtime with me to ensure that the content is understood. She’s also extremely flexible when scheduling our sessions, and has been consistently punctual for them. Even when I’m traveling for business, she’ll rework her schedule to fit in some Skype sessions for me. Without her, I don’t think I would have gotten into my graduate program.” ~ Dave
